Cornish dirt cleaned off for the torch

Posted: May 20, 2012 in cornish language
It seems the repaint of the Land’s End visitors centre has cleansed the Cornish out of the picture. The St Pirans flag, Cornish emblem, and the Cornish language for Land’s End – Penn-an-wlas – have been removed. 
The place is an abominably tasteless tourist trap that has defiled a magnificent natural landscape but isn’t this so very symbolic of how Cornwall is seen by the Anglo-British system? 
Great for weekend breaks and our drunken drugged kids to go surfing in, but good god, keep that authentic Cornish culture out of my face!

    It makes sense for me to go to Land’s End a lot though. I learn languages and in the summer it’s a good place to look for Japanese speakers. I also have lots of family that live up country so they always want to see it.
